3DTin just got more interesting. It now comes with a scoring mechanism. Now you will get rewarded for creating some awesome 3D sketches.
How does it work?
There are two kinds of score that each user can have: Reputation and Persistence
Reputation is what you score when other people like your work. It is measured from the ratings as well as number of views that all your sketches get. So it is a measure of your popularity.
Persistence on the other hand, rewards you for just putting an effort. A work of art cannot completely be judged based upon how many people like it. Its mere creation is an achievement in itself. The persistence score tries to reward you for doing just that. It is calculated based on the way you spend your time editing a sketch.
Once you have an awesome library of 3D sketches and a reputable score, you will need a way to show it off, won’t you?
Enter Profile pages.
Each user now has a profile page of their own. This page lists all their sketches, in addition to 3DTin scores and a profile image from Gravatar. It also lists the source sketches and derivative sketches if applicable.
Here is an example:
How to get to profile pages? Once you login, your nickname in the top right corner links you to your profile page. The same page is accessible to others when someone opens your sketch or its derivative/source sketches. When you are logged in you can edit your profile page.
If you have used 3DTin before and have created some sketches, you will have a non-zero persistence points. If your sketch has gotten rated or just been viewed by many, then you will also have some reputation points. If you are starting fresh, you can start building your score by logging in.
I hope you will enjoy these new add-ons and they will make you feel satisfied for the time you spend on 3DTin. If you have any more suggestions, please do let me know.
